    Decided to head back to Wohlford after a semi-successful outing on Friday, catching a dozen little blue cat spawners. I figured we could catch more of them this time with smaller baits/hooks. Put 2 rods with size 6 hooks in the main hole where we were catching them before, and bombed out a bigger piece of mackerel toward the slope with my third rod. I guess the Wohlford Wimps weren’t out to play today, but their mama was hungry. 20 minutes in we hook up with the rod on the slope, and it ain’t no half pound baby catfish. I thought I was in a snag since it was so heavy and difficult to move, but I was able to do it slowly but surely. Finally got it in after about 15 minutes or so, a true Wohlford Whopper. Weighed in at 39.6 lbs, and released to someday be caught again.

    Thx all. Definitely wanting to head back soon, just hoping they start using all of the rental boats so there isn’t a free for all due to such a limited number of boats. I also wanted to mention that we lost another blue of similar size, casting to the same exact spot but it took me into a snag when I tried to give the rod to my brother. Just the thought of catching two fish of that caliber in the same day amazes me

    Looks like the 10 pounder I caught 15 years ago! Nah, they called mine a Channel! I think they were wrong!

    Your fish doubled my PB! Great job!

    Beautiful fish man.. All the years I fished Wohlford, I never knew they had Blue Cat in there. Always caught Channel, and Bullhead cats. ( never really thought Wohlford held any fish of that caliber ). Very cool..
